Speed Skating - Team Pursuit
Team pursuit is a nail-biting battle on ice, where 2 teams of speed skaters chase each other for several laps round a 400m track. In February, the Japan women's team set a new world record for an incredible fourth time in a row. The team's recent game-changing success is down to painstaking efforts to reduce wind resistance. Through innovative technique and meticulously coordinated movements at speeds topping 50km/h, we explore team Japan's journey from underdogs to pioneers revolutionizing the sport.
